"Well, Mrs. Jones," ejaculated Mrs. B., "you and have had a good many tiffs in our day, aud I would part with you in peace. Can you forgive me?" "Yes marm," sobbed Mrs. Jones, iudeed, indeed I can." 'Am I forgiven?" "Yes marm," responded Mrs. Jones with difficulty, in consequence of the in tesity of her anguish, and then attempted to weep her way out of the dying wo man's room. "Stop a moment, my dear Mrs. Jones," said the expiring B-ovvn, "I'veanother word or two to say. I wish to havh it understood that if I get well, everything goes baek, aud we stand on the same old ground." Logic "Will you pay me your bill sir," said a tailor to a waggish fellow, who ow ed him a pretty long bill. "Do you owe any body anything?" ask ed the wag. "No sir," said the tailor. "Then you can afford to wait." And off he walked. A day or two afterwards the tailor called again. Our wag was not at his wits end yet. So turning to his creditor, he said: "Are you in debt to anybody?" "Yes sir," said the tailor. "Well, sir," said the wa 'I,ve not the money m "That's just my case sir. I am glad to see you can appreciate my condition. Oive u your hand." I ! I I I C3 T I-v From the N. Q. Courier. "How to save the republic In the August number of De Bow's Review, there is a letter addressed by Dr Samuel Cartwright, of Now Orleans, to Daniel Webster, witch treats of the posi tion of the south and of the means whereby the Union may certainly be preserved. Any paper from the pen of so eminent an observer as Dr. Cartwright, should attract attention; and in the present instance, the topic chascn by the author is one that cans not fail to elicit the deepest interest in the mind of the statesman and the patriot. The article is pregnant with the re3ults of intense thought and skilful analysis, and presents some views in connection with the much mooted aud hackneyed subject of slavery, that are characterized by great and undoubted originality. Dr. Cartwright sets out with the propo sitiou that the ana'omy aud physiology of the negro race differ essentially from those of the whito man the differences being manifest in structure as well as iu merely external configuration. He exposes the utter fallacy of the hypothesis that ;he ne gro is a white man painted black, and proves by manifold illustrations that the black man does not exhibit the game phy sical, mental or moral chaiactenstios as the white. He takes the ground that the clear and numerous distinctions between the two rsces unfit them for dwelling to gether, save in the relations which they bear to each other in the South; that this is the only relation under which the ue gro's comfort and happiness can be secu red; that when left to his unassisted re sources he becomes idle and corrupt, in capable of self-government, of permanent industry, of law-respecting and law-abiding freedom, that in every instance, without exception, the experiment of raising the mental and moral standard of the black race by giving (hem freedom, has proved a wretched failure, because the flat of nature has willed it otherwise. Providence has irfttde the dark race peculiar in their organ ization and human legislation can no more substitute the intelligence and aptitude for civilization of the white man, for the indo lence, inertners, ignorance aud incapacity of the negto; than it can change the color of his skin. These positions are enforced by Dr. Cartwright with singular fertility of illus tration and felicity of style. After laying down his premises he proceeds to Remon strate that a large amount of the sympa thy for the slaves felt at the North, arises from a radical misconception of the (unc tions and capabilities of the negro servi tude to be a condition of rank aud gros injustice, aud imagine that the slave would be infinitely better off. were ho made Lee. But, argues Dr. C., if the people of the North could be brought to understand that slavery is the most suitabie condition of the black race, that u:ulr it he thrives, increases his numbers and is happy; that out of it he pines and languishes, becomes vicious and disorderly, a law-breaker and a felon, and peoples our prisons and peni tentiaries if they were made fully and clearly to comprehend these things, their consciences would be relieved, and they would perceive, that no "higher law," calls on them to break a compact which seems expressly sanctioned and provided for by the highest oi" all possible iaws. Hear D;. Cartwight himself. "By going deeply into the organization of our political institutions, it will be found that domestic slavery is not a blot or ex crescence upon them, but a component part of their structure, and cannot be exer cised or cast off without destroying the. or ganism uniting all the parts of this conled eracy into a grand, wonderful, and progrcs sive whole, such as the world naver saw oeiore. J he reason is, that the Atrican is not constituted in mind or in body, iu the skin or undsr the skin, like the white man, but is of a being peculiar to himself and un like any other kind of man. So different was he from the rest of the population, that when, our fathers brought him into the Union, they retained him in the same position he occupied anterior to his admis sion into it. Nor did the Revolution, the S ate Consitutions, or that of the Federal Union, make any change in the govern ment of women and children; no political power being accorded to them; nor did they want it; nor would they have accepted of it had it been offered to them, because its exercise would havo been unsuitable to the sex of the one and the tender age of the other. As they were in colonial times, so are ihby now, and so are negroes, each of these parties being left to move in those paths wheiein it has always found its greatest happiness. "It is erroneous to suppose that the cot ton and sugar interest grown up since the adoption of our present Constitution, has perpetuated domestic slavery in the south, which otherwise, ere this would have been voluntarily relinouished. The" extension of the cotton and sugar culture, so far from being a-misfortune to the slaves, has tended more than anything else, to ameliorate their condition; because the product ot their la bor is sufficiently valuable to enable their masters to supply them with all the neces sary comforts of life, being prompted there to, if not by humanity, by the motives of in terest. The most efficient, and of course the most profitable laborers, are those who are the most active, healthy, happy and contented. To be active, healthy happy and contented, there is no higher law, which says their griefs shall ba inquired into, their troubles removed, and they shal be well fed, lodged and clothed. Interested motives, if no more, would force the master whose slaves are prontaoie to nun, to pro- tact them from what are called the abuses of slavery, and to bestow on them every comfort and attention that the most tender humanity would give. Everything which enhances the value of the slave improves bis condition; as it brings the self-interest of the master the more strongly to bear in protecting him against abuses, trhd in aiding to his comforts. On the other hand, every- thing that diminishes his value, or that o his labor, whether it be the introduction o Chinese laborers into India, or ihe exclu slon of slave labor from any State or terri tory where it would be profitable, operates injuriously against the interest of the slave, who may with truth say, "Save mo fio n my friends, and the laws of God will make it my master's interest to take care of me." Slavery, bofore and at the time ot the forma tion of our present Union, was not as good a condition for the blacks of the south as it is now, because the profits of that kind of labor were not sufficient to afford the labor ers the life they now enjoy. W e are so.ry we cannot quote largely from this masterly paper. It is, however, within the ready reach of the whoio commu nity, and we command it to careful perusal, as one of the ablest and most philosophical disquisitions we have ever read. In bring ing his observations to a close, Dr. Cart wright calls emphatically upon Daniel Webster to employ his intluence to propa gate among the citizens of the North, the important truths he has developed. Communicattl. To Mary Those eyes so bright, that laugh so gay, Will ever haunt me night and day, Ok would I had some poets power, To touch with skill his thrilling lyre, Iu notes divine then would I sing, The charms that from thy graces spring. From the depths of those eyes so blue and so bright Beams a soul as pure as is heaven's own light; Aud fresh as the dew-drops which softy repose In the light of the moon, on the breast of the rose. The tones of thy voice are sweet to mine ear As the song I loved in childhood to hear; And soft as the notes, which the spirits above Breathe to their harps when they speak of love. in the gorgeous saloon where fashions display The soft charms of beauty in brilliant array, In vain might I seek the swet solace to find, Which oft I have felt in the charms of my mind.

We find the following gossip in relation to the Swedish Nightingale in the Ex press. Jenny Lind, the Buffalo Courier records, was among the company at the Clifton House, on the Canada side, Niagara Falls, on Saturday and Sunday, together with Hon. Ool. Bruce, youngest brother and Aid-de-camp 10 Lord Elgin; Sir How Dalrymple, 71st ragiment; Otto Gold schmidt the pianist, aud many officers of the American and Bntisli service, besides a good many fashionables. A funny incipent is desciibed as having occurred on Sunday evening- Jenny was singing in her roonx some little Swedish hymns. Of course at the sound ot ner voice, many persons, some of whom had never heard its delightful tones, assembled in the halls and upon the balconies, to lis ten. Two enthusiastic gentlemen, anxious to be as near as possible to the person of the Syren, leaned against the door of her chamber. Suddenly, the singing ceased the door was opened from the interior, and the two amateurs made a rapid and despe rate plunge directly into the arms of the fair Swede, who was coming out in f 11 .

It was on a clear frosty morning in the winter of 1550 '51, that a hand of hunt ers left the Comfortable fireside of the Mount Crawford House, for the purpose of partici pating in the more oxciting pleasures of a bear hum. They were armed with rifles, and as they ascended tho steep sides oi Mount Crawford, upheld by their broad snow shoo3-, and accompanied by their trus ty dogs, they presented a Iront sufficiently formidable, as they thought, to appal at a giauee tne stoutest bear thai ever waed bid tail among the mountains. Mr. H. was the leader ot tho party a man thoroughly verseu in t&e arts and wiles ot snaring sa- me and hunting woodcaucks. and abun dautly capable, as ho himself thought, of successfully conducting an expedition agaiust the larger inhabitants of the forest. He had heard oa the preceding day that a bear had been traced tt his djn ou the nor thern declivity of Mount Crawford, and hav ng speedily raised a party of kindred spir its, and lost no time in thus putting his pro ject for the animal's capture into execution. Under his guidance no one dreamed of fail ure, and visions of lai bear steak and delici ous roasts danced continually before thj minds ot his too confiding comrades. Indue time the eveutful snot was reached. it was a deep cave; formed by a number of rocks piled up against the base of a Pi ec p- itous ledge, Ihe whole being covered with snow, excepting the hole which served as an entrance. The man were 30411 disposed in order about the spot, two of tliefn sta id ng at a little distance witJi their rifles read cocked, fully prepared to slay poor Bruin, ii by strange fatality he should escape the jullels of young H., to whom haj beei allot ted the honorable task of standing by rhe moutn ot the cave to shoot him through the lead on the instant that extremity should emerge from the hole. After somu uaavail ng attempts to rouse him from his lair, their captain suggested the idea that he might possibly be induced to make a sally by fnin a gun into tho aperture; a gun was accord ugly discharged into the hole, and then a tor a single moment perfect silence reigned 11 the group, and H , was beginnim to fear that his specific had failed, when suddenly the shaggy head of Bruin loide his appear ance at the door of his castle. It was a monstrous head, and well over grown with shaggy black hair, which, con trasted with two rows o!' formidable looking ivories, and added to the twinkle of his deep lustrous eyes, gave rather a ferocious expres sion to his physioguomy. As he stood upon the ihreshoid of his hAh irto happy home, which he was now about to leave, probably lurevcr the scene, perhaps, of his cubhoods days, and possibly connected with tender remintscemces of some fair bearess aud a horde of little bears a shade of melancholy passed over his interesting features, aud ho gave vent to his feelings m a piteous whiue. The hunters could not shoot: whether their tiearts were 6otiened by the sight of ao much sorrow, or turned pale at their proximity to a creature of such unexampled sizj and ap poarance, does not appear, aud. indeed, the bear did not stop to inquire; for aftor smelling a moment a. rhe tudry form of one of liie party, who had been looking into tho cave aud was now lying with his face down directly in the path, and wondering why iu the deuce young li., did net fire, ho passed ou over him, and made a rush through tho surrounding group, who were too much astonished to attempt any molestation. Away he went, poll moll, belter skelter, down the hill, uninjured and unfired at, and ere his assailants recovered from the state of stupefaction into which their surprise had tin own them, he was at least a huudred rods oil, scooring over the rocks and wallowing slap dash through the snow drifts at the rate of aboui ton knots, and occasionally diversi iing nis periorma ces by a lew somersats over the more precipitous parts of the des cent, which in point of agility and grace to a t-rencn dancing-master or a Hindoo iu2ier uccasionaliy he woulu disappear in some .... - - huge dnlt, and then again ho would struggle forth, and pursue his onward course with unabated vigor, not even stopping to shake nimseji, wiiiio tne uisapnomted hunters watched him from their elevation with male dictions "not loud, but deep." The silence was at last broken by the rough voice o the'1" revered leader, again bursting with ran-e as he cheered on the dogs. At him Sounder! At him Sounder! catch himyu villain, or breaK your neck!" .Then turnu,S 10 le nearest of his companioos, all of wnm were convulsed with laughter, and shaking a brawney fist in his face, "toll ma a bar can t run? jst look a-thar!

WiuoiiT Enclosed, I send you a few lines for publication, should you es teem them worthy a place in the columns ot your excellent papar.

What was to be done? What could be done, under the circumstances', to relievo me from tho terrible dilemma, in which I found myself? A common pluca acknowledgment of receipt would never do, nor dared I ven -tore upon a "return offering" that might he valued iu dollars aud cents. In a fit of desperation I determined to do the poet." An hour or two of leisure from my professional labors was accordingly devoted to this object nd the result is before you. Should you, lik your fair neighbor over the way, come to the conclusion that the "indi genous poetry of Yaoo" is "no very great things after all," still I liopa you wiU look with a pardoning eye upon the faults of the picca I send you, as well as upon all other contributions to "Yazoo literature" however humble; and unlike the accomplished lady just referred to, will, ou the principle of "home protection," lead your potent aid in develo ping "native talent" instead of importing a 'foreign article." Last summer, I wrote a few lines under the signature of "Cosmopolite," which the 'Whig" was kind enough to publish, not- wit.ys landing the Editor was a lady, and I sent no other name.

Tha Paris Journal des Debats states that a new spe cies of vessel, destiued, it is expected, to solve the grear. problem of submarine navi gation , has been constructed in the estab- ishmont of M Crueiot. This vessel will proceed from Cruesot's establishment thruogh Paris to Calais by sea, with the aid of its machinery, which is similar to that of propellers. In passing out of the port of Calais, it will plunge under water, and rc-appear a few honrs af terward before Dover.

On Saturday mor .1 . , - 1 1 mug, tne am msi., a man uy mo uaiuc of William Stafford, accidentally shot Mr. David Rea, iu Shelby township, la. The circumstances are these: Mr. Rea the day previous, had been into the woods and kill ed three wild turkeys. When he went home he related his goo success to Mr. S and told him the vicinity in which, he killed them. The next morning about daylight they both repaired to the place neither knowing the design of the other. Mr. Rea got upon the ground first, he concealed himself by the side of a log aud commenced squalling, in imitation of the tuihey, by blowing through an in strument made for that purpose. Mr. S- bein a short distance off, heard him, aad looking iu the direction of the noisa, saw Mr. Rea's head risinsr above tho log. Supposing it to be a turkey, to3k dolib. erate aim and shot him in the head, produ cing instant death. Mr. Rea was a most excellent citizen ; beloved and respected by all who knew him, aud has left a wife and Urge family of children to lament his untimely end. The Baltimore Sun says that "the Med ical College in the University of Michigan at Anu Arbor, in that State, is so liberally endowed by the United States Goveroment, that spacious buildiugs, ample means of i! lustration, and a full corps of Professors are furnished and paid, free of expense to the students, who are admitted from any of tho S'tatc8.

A lady correspondent of the Charleston Evening News, gives the following account of tho in troduction of rice into Carolina, whinh m.t have taken place about the year ir9:i. she pays--Now I will proceed, according to prom ise, to ten of the fortunate accident, which oc casioned the introduction of rice into Carolina a grain suitable to ihe climale and soil of the country. A brigantine from the island of Ma dagasc ar, touching at this town on her way to Britain, came to anchor off Sullivan's Island. The Landgrave Smith, on an invitation from the captain paid him a visit, and ; received from him the present of a hag of seed rice, which ho had seen growing in the enstern countries, where it was deemed excelent fooc and very productive. The Governor most thankfuly accepted and divided the small quantity between Stephen Bull, Joseph Wood ward and some o ther friends, who agreed to make the experiment, and planted each hi3 parcel, in a different soil; it answered their highes expectations. Some years after that. Mr. Dubois, treasurer of the Ea6t India Com pany, sent a bjg of seed rice to Carolina, which it is supposed by some gave rise to the distinction of red and white; others believe it to depend on culture. Pine Applb Cambric. The fabric called rina, at Manilla, is made from the fibres of the pine apple leaf. The finer qualities excel in transparent delicacy of th read, the fiucst cambric ever seen. It is exceedingly costly, and probibly from that reason does not find much favor as an export. Designs drawn upon paper are placed beneath the pina intended for em broidering, and the outlines are traced upon it with a pencil. It is then stretch ed out about a foot from the floor, and parallel to it, the workmen and women (for both sexes are employed) sit all round, with their legs bent under them as closely as they can oly the needle. A recent tiaveller, who witnessed the opera tion, says: "From the slow, laborious pro cess, I was not astonished that a fullv em broidered handkerchief, 21 inches square. should cost $40." The workmanship is' exquisite. The Fire Ann hilator The N. Y. Sun observes by tho English papers receiv ed by the Baltic, that at several acciden tal fires which, have recently occurred in that country, Phillips's "Fire Annihi lators' have been used with the most complete suc cess. The flames are instantan iousi r riuench- ed by vapor emitted by this little ma chine. In ordinary cases of fire, as much damage is caused to goods, machinery. SiC, by the water used iu its extinction as by the fire itself. But this vaDor. whil it noiselessly and effectually "annihilates" the fire, will not soil the finest peice of silk, or affect; the most delicate and valuable machinery. Many thousands of dollars havo been saved by these machines in Fug land. A London paper describes this in vention as a "machine weighing less than twenty pounds, which a man can carry with ease under his arm, and which, by the mere turning of a stop cock, will bring the fiercest flfa me cowering and dy ing at its feet, like a crouching slave be fore Us master.
